I have noticed here that the comments people get, that is especially newbies, they get vague comments, which are either too harsh or too lenient. Harsh comments discourage the new artist whereas too leniant comments make them feel overconfident even of their poor works. Comments like "Bad Work", "Very Poor" must be avoided , instead suggestions need to be given for the artist to improve. Our goal should be not to criticize, but to help others reaching a good level in Photoshop. 1. Never use words like "poor" "bad", approach the artist like a friend and not a critic. 2. Don't try to use advanced terms when you're commenting on a newbies work, just try to explain things from zero level. 3. Always start you comment with a good point, like "the artwork is really good' and then slowly pick out the negative points. 4. Try not to use the word copy, if the artwork is inspired by someone else, there is a whole lot difference between copying a work and getting inspired, using the word copy will just make the artist protect himself. 4. While commenting on the negative points, ensure that the artist is able to comprehend it. Link him to tutorials focusing on his weak point, share a .psd or two. 5. Lastly end your comment with a good note like "KIU" "you're improving" (if he is ) It takes a lot of practice for constructive criticism, but it's all worth it. A few graphic-artists here for example, when people used to comment good work, his development got stalled, but once he got constructive criticism he came up. Regards. PS: I'd like a mod to close this thread and sticky it so that it could be read by all.
